My Favorite Mantels Painted in Dark Tones

Welcome friends!

I'm loving the contrast of black with whites and creams lately.

It isn't a total departure from what we have going on in the house (doors and other accents have been painted black), but I think it made it really stand out and be a focal point in our space.

Here are some fantastic inspiration pictures that show how gorgeous a dark mantel can truly be...
